Making the award presentations was special guest and renowned author Julian Sedgwick, who gave an inspirational address recounting his wide range of experiences as a bookseller, painter, therapist and researcher.

His message was to have an enquiring mind and kind heart and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way – Julian also provided some lively entertainment with his superb knife juggling skills!

During the evening guests listened to some beautiful solo musical performances by students Lucy Gill, Claudia Stevenson and Josie Lincoln – they each performed to an appreciative audience.

The proceedings were overseen by head teacher Richard Lord and a vote of thanks and presentation to Julian was made by head boy and head girl Alexander Heatley and Isabella Oakley.
